Legendary bathing place of the fairies, Love Waterfall rises like a sparkling pyramid of light from a lush bamboo forest speckled with red, white, and yellow rhododendron flowers. The waterfall is attached to a legendary love story of a heavenly fairy, which turned into a bird in order to stay close to her lover--a young flute player. Follow a dirt road through a pristine forest to reach the base of the waterfall. Watch the body of water stumbling down from the peak of a mountain and streaming over golden rocks between plots of green grass and mossy bamboo clusters. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Sapa holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Love Waterfall and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

70.000 vnd for ticket to go inside here. Worth trying, nice waterfall near the town, 15km from the town center. Need a good shoes to walk cause its pretty tired walk up and down. Waterfall is beautiful though i saw some rubbishes around and it seems like people left it before they go.
Park rangers busted us for trying to hike up Fansipan without a guide so went to Love Waterfall instead and it turned out to be very lovely! Worth the small fee. Nice trail and bathrooms along the way.
